Feed me more candy

This Halloween season has been so eventful that today at Costco I kept asking Jeff why they were still selling costumes. I thought it was over. I only just realized that Halloween isn't even until next week. I also just remembered that Grace has a bucket full of Halloween candy in the cupboard. I never knew how fun Halloween was until I became a mom. My mom never let me go trick or treating, because she thought it was rude, so I'm like one of those deprived kids that goes crazy when they are allowed some freedom. Like today I ate 3 doughnuts, and 2 candybars. I'm eating for 2, though, so really it's like I ate 1 1/2 doughnuts and 1 candybar.

So far this month we've gone to the pumpkin patch, carved pumpkins, made lots of hot chocolate and sat by the fire, gone to Jeff's work party, a friend's party, the ward trunk or treat, and had a birthday party for Sadie with the neighbors. Have I ever mentioned that her birthday is on Halloween? Awesome. I don't have any pictures of any of these activities. I'm so bad at taking pictures when there's stuff going on. But I will post our recent pics of sitting around at home, doing nothing, because that is when I think to take a picture.

This is Grace's costume. A garden gnome.

I don't know why, but I think Grace sitting at the table in the morning, eating her breakfast is the cutest thing ever. I think half the pictures I take are just of this.

Hi Sophia

The other day I bought Grace a toy dog at DI. I don't usually buy toys at DI, because they're disgusting, but ever since Jeff put me on a budget I started being more responsible with money I've been getting really bored. I decided to go find some old furniture to refinish and sell for way more than it's worth, so I could buy myself some new fat maternity clothes. While we were there Grace fell in love with this little dog toy. I could tell it was supposed to talk and stuff, but there weren't any batteries. We brought it home, and put batteries in, but it still didn't work, so I said a swear word, and then went about my day. Later while I was in the bathroom doing my semi anual toenail painting I heard this child talking. I stopped and listened, and distinctly heard someone saying, "You take such good care of me Sophia." I came out to find Grace holding her DI dog, and laughing. Apparently it's one of those things you can plug into your computer, and program to say your kids name and stuff. So now all day long I hear about this Sophia person. It's creepy and funny at the same time. Sadie hates it. She gets super jealous when I touch it, and starts barking and growling. Sometimes I see her run by at full speed, with it in her mouth, whipping it back and forth.

"Brush me Sophia."

Things that make me want to not have any more kids

Dumping milk on the dogs head

Stealing all of my food, and then saying thank you.

Hearing "Mommy" over and over all day long as if it is the word to use for everything.

Hearing the word "Ew" which means that Grace has pooped, and it's coming out her pants.

Playing with dog poop in the backyard.

Asking for cheese, and then feeding it to Sadie. Actually asking for anything, and then feeding it to Sadie.

Falling asleep with Grace in our bed, and being kicked all night.

Grace asking to be picked up after I've made her upset about something, so she can hit me in the face.

That hand that's always groping my boob in public.

Screaming in church when everyone is quiet, and then laughing.

Finding KY and using it as lotion.

And....our latest pictures. Lagoon, pumpking carving, and our new favorite activity-fires. No pictures of me, because pregnancy makes me too fat.

Thou Shalt Not Kill

Yesterday in primary we learned about the ten commandments. One of the kids in my class raised his hand and said, "If you kill someone with their head off, and then you eat it then it's called the hunger games." I have the best children in my class. So spiritual.
